    Hey Y'all, I picked up a shotgun a couple months ago and would like to find a place I could go to and shoot something else besides 7 1/2 birdshot or slugs.

    I went out to the Trap and Skeet range off of Decker (those guys and gals are #1!) and they let me shoot their pattern board for free, as long as I used 7 1/2 shot. It was great to get some rounds through it, but I want to shoot some 00 this time.

    Red's will let me shoot a shotgun there, if I use slugs. I just can't justify gettin in the car, driving there, renting a lane and whatnot just to shoot a few slugs. I don't think I could afford very many, and even though the Benelli has a ComforTech stock, I'm not sure how long I'd last with slugs.

    So anyone know of a range that doesn't mind 00 and the like? Or maybe someone with private property up in North Austin/Cedar Park area? I just want to plink.

    Here's one, though it would be a bit of a drive for you. I haven't been there yet, though it sounds like a pretty relaxed range compared to most: http://www.ctxpta.com/

    Dang...I can't think of the name but there is a range on the north west side of Austin.

    Nevermind, They really ain't that good of a range.
